Please join us for an afternoon of learning, featuring text study, an acting demonstration, and opportunities to share a meal and view a performance together.
1:30: Coffee hour / socializing
2:00-3:30: Study The Comedy of Errors with Julia Lupton, professor of English and co-director of the New Swan Shakespeare Center. What makes twins so funny, and what challenges do they pose for performance?
